New Kenwood

Well just finished installing my new Kenwood DNX6990HD, replaced the Magnadyne unit with it and am very pleased with the results. Will be giving it a good work out next month but so far I like it.

Does it have 5.1? That seems to be the thing most of these radios are lacking.

I have been very pleased with my Magnadyne. I also have the Kenwood in my toad, but I don't particularly like the Kenwood, although the software has one feature I DO like; when looking for POIs such as fuel stops, the Kenwood software will show which direction the POIs are from your current location - wish the Magnadyne had that feature!

Sorry to say Kentwood may be lacking 5.1, whatever that is, be reliability and dependability outweigh it.
Mine was just updated by dealer via Magnadyne and I called Mike/Mark personally to insure current up date sent. They are both wonderful and most helpful. My unit is current and updated.
Left for three day trip, one hour out GPS started telling me to turn around and I did not have it on. Only radio was turned on and could not cancel. Spent rest of trip, another hour listening to I pod
Sorry love my Lexington but the radio has to go. Every month since I bought it my major complaint has been the Magnadyne.

$129.00 GPS from WallyWorld and I pod work as well.

That's the problem I had with the Magnadyne after updating, if you got off course just a little it would not or could not correct the data and would want you to turn around and go back.

Henry:
5.1 is an audio protocol for sending sound to five speakers (middle, 2 sides, 2 rear) and a subwoofer. The Magnadyne supports it, but I can't see any value for it in my Solera since I don't have a rear speaker system in mine. I think it may work when feeding audio from a video disk to the TV, using the TV speakers as the extra set, but I'm not sure. I don't buy music, so I'm not sure if audio discs have this or not, but even with video discs, the disc has to be encoded for 5.1

There is also a 7.1 encoding too, but I've not seen much on the market supporting it.
